Playlist: Sirius XM’s ‘Dark Wave,’ 9/26/10

1st Wave

Heavy on the usual suspects, tonight’s episode of “Dark Wave” — the weekly Sunday night show on Sirius XM’s classic-alternative station 1st Wave — still manged a few nice surprises. Among them: Not one but two of long-forgotten U.K. synthpop duo Vicious Pink’s 1985 singles (“Fetish,” “Cccan’t You See”), and a dash of avant-garde electronic artist Anne Clarke (“Our Darkness”). Plus, the show closed with one of The Cure’s weirder tracks, “If Only Tonight We Could Sleep.”

“Dark Wave” airs each Sunday from 10 p.m. to 1 a.m. Eastern/7 p.m. to 10 p.m. Pacific.

  1. Seeing this list makes me wish I had Sirius XM.

  2. Giorgio Moroder? He was a total disco producer, that’s a bit strange. And the Cure “if only tonight we could sleep” a “weirder” track? It’s brilliant and dark and lovely. I still don’t understand the Duran Duran songs on the playlist. I like them enough, but they were never really dark.
